feeling a bit sheepish

the wooly-brained ramblings of a knitter and novice spinner... it may be 'a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing'...but it's mine ;-)

"...shine like an angel..."*

for a change, a finished object that i'm very happy with...alert the media, cuz it doesn't happen often ;-)

i really enjoyed knitting this one...and i've already got yarn for a second one, earmarked for the cute-as-a-bug-in-a-rug daughter of my cousin...


Pattern: Oat Couture's Angel Sweater--nice pattern (i did have some issues with the sleeve shaping, so i may experiment with that, but they turned out nicely regardless), easy to follow and it makes a darned cute sweater :-)

Yarn: Louet Gems Merino Opal, color "Willow" (to me, neither of these photos is exactly 'right' in capturing the color...it's somewhere between the two) this yarn is great to work with, soft and 'squnchy', and feels just as nice knit up, great stitch definition...and it's machine washable!

Needles: from my trusty Denise kit, a perfect choice to use, since the pattern calls for a variety of needle sizes to do the shaping

*lyric clip from Angel, by Jon Secada...yup i was hard up for a title, but i like this song

    lol thanks...and no actually it doesn't say in the post (well...i suppose the fact that the second pic has a tb watermark might be a clue...so maybe it does lol) it's a shop model ...i've got yarn for one for my cousin's daughter, but haven't started it yet ;o)
